Soccer Playing Mom - World's Masters Japan!

I'm a single mom of four kids and I work fulltime as a paralegal. I am also writing two novels.

I belong to a team, Ottawa Women's United, in an over 35 women's league. We are raising funds to go to Kansai, Japan for the 2021 World's Masters. 

Soccer has been a passion of mine for the last four years, where I was coaching Timbits (aka Little League) while pregnant with my fourth child, I've coached my girls' soccer teams, I sit on our local Soccer Club Board, as well as play. Being a single Mom with 4 kids can be very trying and also rewarding. 

Any contribution helps my campaign and several of my friends have stated, "I want to support you going, not the entire team." It's a team effort for sure, and we are still raising funds for the entire team. 

This is to help me out to make sure I am able to go regardless of the funds the team raises for the team, as it is split amongst 16 players. 

The total cost of the trip will be closer to $6,000, but I am able to save some already. 

Thanks to all!
